Mary Nichols Apologizes for her
Role in the Hien Tran Cover up
Mary is really sorry for her lack of judgment but has a good excuse in
the first video: She just knew Hien Tran got it right even if he lied
about having a PHD and was the lead author in the report upon which the
Truck and Bus rule was based. She tells us that Hien's role in
the report was minor. She also accuses some Board Members of "Wild and
unjustified claims" But wait, in the second video, Dr. John Telles
reads from the report and shows that the majority of the report was
done by Tran. Supervisor Ron Roberts has a few thoughts of his own in
the third video clip as he takes exceptions to the "Wild and
unjustified" accusation leveled by Nichols. Much later at the
same meeting, staffer Mike Scheible tells the board not to worry
because they did not base their rule on the Tran's report. Ron Roberts
scolds the staffer, telling him that he (Scheible) and staff "is missing the point". That is seen in the clip four.
